Are Food Shows the New Soap Operas?

7 Feb

With reality shows popping up on every major station, it is hard to not get sucked into yet another ridiculously wonderful waste of time. But, aren’t reality shows just real-life versions of the soaps our moms watched while we were little? (I can still turn on Days of Our Lives and know exactly what is happening.)

ABC recently canceled midday staple All My Children, along with One Life to Live, yet new cooking realities are flooding the waves. From The Chew to Rachel vs. Guy, Cupcake Wars and Top Chef there is a show from competitions to chatting about food trends with celebs that whip up their ‘own’ dishes.

Are you into the new foodie reality shows?

I’m a big fan of the Food Network and Real Housewives, but somehow I have not jumped onto the cooking reality bandwagon.
